Tottenham set £200m price tag on Harry Kane amid Man United, City interest
According to Italian publication Tutto Mercato Web (h/t Express), Tottenham Hotspur have slapped a £200m valuation on superstar Harry Kane amid rising interest from Manchester United and Manchester City.
Kane has been heavily linked with a transfer to Premier League champions Manchester City. The Cityzens are already said to have tabled a bid in the region of £100m while also offering players in exchange in order to try and secure the services of the England captain.
In addition to that, the aforementioned report also mentions that Manchester United, too, are very keen on signing the England captain this summer. Furthermore, there has been mention of Chelsea as a potential suitor for the 27-year-old as well.
However, Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy sees Kane as non-transferable, despite the centre-forward’s wishes of wanting to test himself at a new club in a new challenge. And, in order to stave off the interest from the two Manchester clubs, the Spurs’ head honcho has now slapped a mammoth £200m valuation on his star striker.
Such a massive fee might not be affordable for either United or City this summer, despite their deep pockets. Manchester United have already splashed the big bucks on Jadon Sancho and are eyeing Raphael Varane as well, who is expected to cost big money as well. (h/t Express)
As for Manchester City, Pep Guardiola himself has admitted that big-money signings could be off the table this summer, if the valuations are as high as these. (h/t Mirror)
